I would love a night's sleep like that! If you're waking up feeling refreshed too, then it looks like the CPAP treatment has resolved whatever was causing the oxygen desaturation.

Thank you MMcG for noticing my desaturation was 90% of the night:

Just for clarity, she did say between 80-89% for 89% of the sleep time. That's not "a few times a night". That sort of desaturation for nearly all the night is something that needs to be addressed urgently.

That’s why I wanted to take quick action while waiting for my appointments. I have gotten the courage and good feedback here on my two OSCARs so I truly appreciate this forum.
